What happened to Ghost of Tsushima?

Given who the dev is, I have little to no faith in it being anything other than Ok at best. Having to live in the Shadow of Sekiro must suck, though.

Rumour Central:
Via Dualshockers.com it seems they, Suckerpunch, found some internal delays and have struggled with PS5 tech scaling or something. We won’t hear anything until next year.

Also rumours about TLOU having a dedicated State of Play November first.

Read it all via Dualshockers and as always take with a grain of salt:

When was the last time a high profile Sony first party game was actually cancelled? I honestly don't remember.

The remainder of Playstation's 2019 is already set -- let those games keep the spotlight and show Tsushima late December/early January with TLoU 2 to keep the gaming gravy train rolling.

Man, I try not to think of this game at all.

Sony announced it in 2017 and we still ain't got a release date.

my only concern is that sucker punch's always been an extremely productive & dependable developer. up till now, anyway. infamous: first light was released in august, 2014. that was 5 years ago. so, yeah, i'd say that the continuing silence re: ghost of tsushima, at this point, is pretty strange...

They're not in a position to show anything yet because the big focus is on Death Stranding and TLOU2 afterward. Going by that pattern Ghost should be next but there's zero evidence that anything is wrong.

FUD gonna FUD.

Honestly, I hate that. GT6 on PS3 was such a shame, it could’ve been so much better as a PS4 launch title. And like I said earlier, I’ve already stopped playing on PS4, it’s too weak and loud and I simply don’t want to buy a Pro at this point. So I want everything on PS5 now so I have something awesome to look forward to that isn’t held back by 7 year old hardware. Ghost is already wow-worthy, on PS5 it would look insanely good.
I don't know, if I can be impressed by what's on existing hardware, a jump in framerate, resolution and minor effects is not gonna blow me away. Maybe I'm just old school and use to only huge jumps in graphics per generation to impress me.

Plus, I guess YMMV, because I usually buy a console 2-3 years in, not at launch, so when next gen comes around I'm still on last gen looking for new stuff.

lmao y'all fukken silly

Me: remember this game that was revealed in 2017 with a significant announcement demo in 2018 and now radio silence a year later just checking up now, a few months from next gen
If they nothing worth to show, i prefer 1000 times they just focus on the game, instead of the classic "NEWS OF GHOST OF TSUSHIMA: WE WILL REVEAL BIG NEWS SOON!!!" we are just used to. God i hate annoucements of annoucements lol.

I haven't seen a good FUD thread since gamefaqs so congrats I guess?

There's nothing strange about this with the current(and IMO unnecessary) level of secrecy across this industry.

It’s in development and they don’t want to just show us the same shit over and over again until there’s substantial news to deliver?

It’s pretty much been Sony’s behavior for about a year and a half now.

Should we start worrying about The Last Of Us 2 and the PS5 as well now?

It's in development obviously. What are you expecting? Monthly updates? Most big budget games don't work like that.

It’s a game that’s still in development.

Also, all the Sekiro comparisons are irrelevant. The games are totally different.

It'll very likely be a Sprint 2020 release with either a cross gen release, or PS5 enhancements. TLoU2 will be holiday 2020 with similar treatments.

Kind of Sony's fault though for announcing it entirely too early. Same for TLOU2 and Death Stranding for that matter. They like to announce a game with a trailer....say absolutely nothing about it for a year, show one more trailer....and go radio silent until it's time for the marketing push. Leads to people questioning its existence or development status.

Personally I find it more annoying than anything. I don't need constant news about a game, but don't want to tease it out for 4 years either. Sure it's hard to keep things secret until closer to launch but throwing out a trailer or a little bit of info helps curb the desire to be internet famous for 3 days and leak stuff. Idk...I'm rambling at this point and just greatly prefer a shorter announce-release schedule.
Announced too early? Lol...

PS5 launch fo sho, but I also checked my usual Glassdoor stuff, and there's a few company reviews saying that Sucker Punch management is a joke, so my guess is that there's been a lot of vision problems with the project, and they'd be no stranger to it considering how sort of faceless the Infamous games felt at times.

Big conclusions from almost nothing but I've just learned that the prolonged silence often ends up showing something disappointing.

Not really sure I wanna see suckerpunch’s take on Japanese history/culture tbh
So far it's certainly a gorgeous and stylized take visually so I'm actually really curious how this game'll turn out overall in that aspect.

I'm curious to see if it'll go Sekiro style and here's some history but yeah, there's fucking demons and generals are 8 feet tall and dragons and occult rites and weird bugs fuck yeaaaaa

Is this Sekiro thing a meme or what?
I used to think it was a drinking game but realised this place likes to pick one game every so often then compare everything to it no matter how tenuous the link. Before Sekiro it was Breath of the Wild.

One day a game will come out that makes people link both of them to it and nobody will come out from it sane.

But you are getting it on PS5. There is backwards compability and probably even "PS5" patch that takes advantage of the PS5 hardware.
At best that will be like an X enhanced patch - better resolution and framerate, maybe higher resolution textures too. That's cool and all but not what I want from a new AAA game in 2020.

Do you seriously expect them to somehow upgrade the graphics of the game that much if they did make it for the PS5? At best you will get something like TLOU Remastered or GTA5. Basically better resolution and textures and framerate, which is something a patch could do.

They would need to overhaul the game to make it truly "next gen".

Then make the overhaul, it's a year a way if the rumours are correct. Look at what a small studio like Hello Games can do during a year with their crazy updates on NMS.

Why would they do that when they can just release it on PS4 (more people who could play it and more success)?

They have already made it for PS4 so I see no reason to throw away all that work just to make it for PS5. I would rather they do a PS5 sequel instead.

It'll pop up again next year probably. It's definitely not in development hell like WiLD or dead like Deep Down.

My guess Ghost of Tsushima will not be a 2019-2020 game. Do you want an incomplete game? Or do you want a complete game?

They are developing the game. duh.

It's only been 2 years since it was announced, and we literally got a trailer last year.
And since sony was not at E3, and it was a comprehensive enough trailer, it probably doesn't really need any extra markerting until it's near release.

Most overrated boring as hell game of this year... I want my 35 hours back
Sekiro was an amazing change of pace game for From Software...to think that Sekiro was almost like a side project and not even their main focus which was Elden Ring and they still delivered a masterpiece...unfair or not Tsushima would always be compared to Sekiro and that hurt the game...they were wise to delay it for awhile and give it some space from Sekiro

Significantly less Sony pressers this year + Death Stranding and TLOU 2 release dates on the horizon = the mid/late 2020 game is not in the marketing cycle.
